Nim Skulls

 
Nim is an ancient game.
This macabre version is more of a puzzle than a game. 
Once you solve the puzzle, you can win every time.

The rules are simple:
You play the computer.  You move first.  You can pick up one, two, or three skulls at a turn.  Click on a skull to pick it.  Press the REST  button when you're done with your turn.

The winner is the player that forces the other player to pick up the last skull.
